My goal is to read 4 books this month. I read three in January so it isn’t so much of a stretch, I’d love to read five to catch up to my yearly goal, but I’ll be happy with three or four.
1)Give and Take
Elly Swartz did such a good job with Finding Perfect, I want to see her take on another mental health issue, hoarding. When Maggie’s parents become temporary guardians to a baby from foster care, Maggie’s need to hoard spirals out of control. I’m interested to see how this compares to Finding Perfect.

2)On the Edge of Gone
Sixteen-year-old Denise, who is autistic must survive the end of the world with her neglectful mother and try to find her missing sister as they find space upon a generational ship where they aren’t supposed to be. Deals with the issues of who deserves to be saved at the end of the world. I’ve heard lots of good things about this book so I’m hopeful.
3)The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart
I’m already about a third of the way through this book but I’m going to count it on my February TBR since I’m probably not going to finish it in the next few days. A very cute story about a dragon who gets turned into a human after drinking enchanted hot chocolate then finds work at a chocolate house.
4) The Girl King
When Lu’s father names a male cousin to replace him on the throne Lu must go on the run to reclaim her birthright. Meanwhile, her sister Min must discover her own hidden power. Also happy to add to my YARC goals.
I didn’t finish this in January but it’s super cute, its about a girl from a rural country who goes to a famous school to learn how to do, wu liu, the deadly and beautiful art of martial arts figure skating. I’m already a few chapters in and the narrative reads more like poetry, so it took a little getting used to but I like it.
What’s on your February TBR list?
